That has been our motto this weekend while Shelley has been gone to the beach. We and some friends have taken over her pool while she's been away. Here are some of the things we've chosen to.
That was Spence...
That was Price. Seriously it has been so nice here that we haven't needed the beach. Summer is here and I'm loving every minute of it. Today we are heading to Oklahoma for football camps and seeing family. We are excited to celebrate my Mother - n - laws birthday by going to the Yellow Rose Dinner theater. I'm excited about that:) I'm excited to be home. It's been awhile. Pray for me as we head to OK, I've heard we will hit storms all the way there.
Have a blessed day!
Hello from sunny Florida!! We are out of school and enjoying the first days of family vacation. I have been coming to the Florida panhandle to kick off summer since 1979... (I had to ask my mom for that little factoid.)
Now- 30 some years later- my sister and I are bringing our own kids- crazy!
Here is Caroline on her super cool bike headed to the beach this morning.
And she's off!!
In the water in two seconds flat with "Boppa" as her personal boat pulley...
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!!
A huge special thanks to all our armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
We salute you this weekend- and rest assured- we will be flying our flags proudly on the beach- Boppa will make sure of that!!
I can't believe it. This year FLEW by. I'm sad, my boys went out the door this morning before I could get a picture of them. Well, we still have awards and 8th grade promotion on Friday, so I'll get it then. Today I will spend rushing around to get a few things done before we really hit summer. As I was laying in bed last night next to Price, we were talking about the school year. I am reminded of things that I prayed for as they started the year. God has been so faithful to answer some of those prayers. He really does care more about our children then we do. It's hard to comprehend.
I was reminded by my friend Jessica Katina the other day while she was coloring my hair of that very important thing. Trust God with you kids. We parent and love them the best we know how, but at the end of the day we have to learn to TRUST. I needed to hear that. God has a plan for their lives and it might not be my plan:) So keep praying for them. Talking to God about them is one of the best things we can possibly do for them.
Well, I'm off to run errands, get to after school parties and such. Have a very blessed day.
A week of FUN - Field Day events, Games and Academic Awards to boot!! Last week started the count down to summer and each day was filled with so much activity. I don't know how people do it with more than one kid? How can you be in two places at one time?
Along with the field day activities, Darby's class studied the Olympics and all of it's traditions. They dressed in toga's and had an Olympic ceremony. Here are some of the field day and Olympic highlights. (sorry to bore you...I just thought it was so fantastic!).
This picture is the wonderful 3rd grade teachers!!! WE LOVE YOU LADIES!!!
SO MUCH FUN!!!!
Darby is balancing her egg on a spoon. GO DARB'S GO!!!
Our kids are so extremely blessed!!! Darby is aware and is very grateful for her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Yarber and the rest of the teaching staff!!!
Last but not least, today was Terrific Tuesday also known as the award ceremony. Darby received the Academic Award for straight A's!!! I can't believe MY kid had straight A's... she gets her brain from her Dad and her athletic skills from her Moma. (Hee hew)
So sad to see this year come to an end but a GRAND end it is... We could not be more proud of our little girl and consider being her parents a pure JOY and DELIGHT!!!
It is "Terrific Tuesday's" like this one, we thank God for all the 1000 little things He has blessed our family with!!!
I certainly hope each of you have a VERY safe summer and enjoy the 1000 little things God puts in your pathway!!
Point of Grace was featured HUCKABEE on the Fox News channel, celebrating Mother’s Day with a special performance of "A Thousand Little Things". Governor Huckabee joined the girls on bass during their performance.
Leigh also made a special Mother’s Day announcement that she is expecting her second child in November. Congrats Leigh!
